More about Haivision Makito X HEVC:

 Available as a single or dual-channel device, the Makito X HEVC decoder delivers HD video to 3G-SDI and HDMI interfaces with support up to 1080p at 60Hz.

The company says the Makito X HEVC decoder complements its Makito X HEVC encoder to deliver HEVC or H.264 1080p video with low end-to-end latency.

“The Makito X series continues to be the industry’s go-to encoding and decoding platform for high-quality, low-latency video backhaul,” says Peter Maag, chief marketing officer, Haivison.

“Now with an end-to-end HEVC video workflow and our SRT protocol, broadcasters can realize even more benefits for low-cost video transport over any bandwidth constrained network, including public Internet.”
